Kathleen Sebelius, Governor of Kansas and a two term state insurance
commissioner has been nominated by President Obama as his nominee for
secretary of health and human services.
The choice is made only a few days before a health care summit is to be held at the White House.
Ms. Sebelius endorsed President Obama’s early in the presidential
nomination battle and campaigned throughout the country on his behalf.
She even made it here to North Carolina.
It only makes sense that this week's Green Report focus on
the environment and the Obama administration after his joint session of
Congress address on Tuesday. The Pres has some big ideas to help the
environment. In fact, his top priority was energy, which includes
producing more renewable energy and reducing America's dependence on
oil from the Middle East. Woo hoo!
The number one
principle of feminine leadership, is to create your own feminine base
camp. This is where you get nutritions for your body and soul, before
you soar up to the highest peaks.
A huge error of the feminine is that we have a collective habit of
taking care of everybody else first, forgetting to take care of our
self. And we end up burned out, bitter and tense in our bodies.
My blog will not be a tutorial or guide because I do not think black women need to be taught how to mother. Nurturing is in our nature. For years we have carried the weight on our shoulders and held it all together. Alternatively, it will be a space for black women to talk because in my short time that I have resided here on Planet Earth, I find we, as black women, hold so much in. We are sometimes everything in the household and we grin and bear it-with no outlet to seek solace. Even with our girlfriends, we try to act composed as if we have it all together.
You might have heard that the New York Post ran a cartoon today that depicts one (white, male) police officer saying to another (white, male) police officer who has just shot a chimpanzee on the street: "They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill." There's a blogstorm going on about whether t
Man! Ok, I made it past all the scrolling of tags. That's one still I'm still trying to learn about with this whole blogging thing. I sometimes think blogging comes naturally to me in a since. I love to write and connect with people, and it's a facinating personal way to do that online.
I'm trying to decide about this BlogHer conference thing. This mental debate doesn't really fit with the topic of my blog so I'm blogging about my BlogHer quest here (and Twitter: http://twitter.com/babymakinmachin ).
You may still be grappling at the title of my post but read on.
One of the most active rebel groups fighting in Darfur and the government in Khartoum have agreed to sign a so-called "declaration of good intentions" which could further lead to a possible peace deal in the region.
What does it mean?
There are a lot of ways to change the world. Because, face it: bringing about any of kind of change is best effected incrementally. You don't just set off one morning to run a marathon; you put on running shoes, you do some stretching, you run around the block, you come home and then you keep repeating, running longer and faster with every new attempt. Likewise with changing the world: it's the little incremental steps that do the trick. If we set out to just all of a sudden force a transformation, we wouldn't be very successful. Also, we'd probably get really bad cramps.
